拍品資料及來源

"[Ligon's] first neon relief, Warm Broad Glow, consists simply of the words 'negro sunshine' fashioned in letters some sixteen feet across and three feet high. The sign is rendered in old typewriter characters, each one dipped face first in black paint so that the light escapes only from behind, casting a cool fluorescence on the wall on which it hangs, about eight feet from the ground... The work inverts the relationship between light and dark one expects from a lighted sign against a recessive ground; it casts a pall over Stein's nagging phrase, but there remains, as well, a paradoxically effulgent and hopeful penumbra. Of all Ligon's work with text, this piece is perhaps his most distilled and elegant visual rephrasing of borrowed words." (Scott Rothkopf in Exh. Cat., New York, Whitney Museum of American Art (and travelling), Glenn Ligon: AMERICA, 2011, pp. 44-45)
